Linyanti Discoverer Camp
Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, Botswana
LINYANTI DISCOVERER CAMP - LINYANTI
WILDLIFE RESERVE, BOTSWANA
Linyanti Discoverer Camp is situated in the exclusive
125,000 hectare Linyanti Wildlife Reserve - to the east of Kings Pool
Camp and near the western boundary of Chobe National Park. The region's
key feature is the Linyanti River and its marshes, which are complemented
by the contrasting dry woodlands inland. Massive lagoons and steadily
flowing rivers abound with papyrus and phragmites reedbeds. The heavily
forested riverine fringes blend into dry countryside further inland, away
from the river. This area is best known for its enormous herds of Elephant,
which move down to the Linyanti River at the start of the winter months
and only retrace their steps inland once the main rains arrive. Linyanti
Discoverer Camp is owned and operated by Wilderness Safaris.

Linyanti Discoverer Camp sleeps
a maximum of eight guests in five comfortable tents, all with en suite
facilities (hot and cold running water, showers and flush toilets). The
dining area and pub area are also under canvas. This camp has the rustic
charm of an old style safari camp with a great atmosphere and feeling
of intimacy. Complimentary laundry services are provided.
Activities here are varied
and include game drives, both by day and by night in open 4x4s, game
and bird walks, canoeing in stable "Canadian" canoes on the
large lagoons and boating on the smaller waterways. Everything possible
is on offer!
Sable and Roan Antelope occur here, as well as Lion,
Leopard and Wild Dog. The marshes are home to Red Lechwe, Sitatunga, Hippo,
Crocodile and prolific birdlife. Moving along the fringes of the waterways,
guests can see Kudu, Zebra, Buffalo, Waterbuck and Impala. However, as
with the other camps in the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve, the real attraction
is here is the large concentrations of Elephants guests will see - especially
during the drier winter months from May through October.
Hunting and Conservation
The Linyanti Wildlife Reserve
is a multi-purpose reserve where photographic safaris are conducted and
where hunting is technically allowed. Wilderness Safaris (which owns and
operates four camps within the reserve) have decided not to hunt anywhere
in this area and as a result, they forfeit well over US$300,000 in revenue
per annum. Wilderness Safaris strives to ensure that the animals that
live in and around their concessions are not negatively impacted by tourism.
Eyes On Africa actively support only operators like Wilderness
Safaris, which do not allow any hunting.
